Hi there,

Yes antibiotic and UTi both can delay the period.

Antibiotic especially can mess with your hormones causing delayed period.

The discharge can be due to the fungal infection if you also have itching.

If no itching, then you do not need to treat this.

Your period should normalize by next month.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
